Saint John

Memories of my father

I write down for my son

That he may know the man he was

Know whom he came from


Absorbing more than stories

But grace passed on in kind

Through me my father and my son

Find their lives entwined


So John writes in his letter

About the man he came to know

The Son of God the living one

To you now I will show


What he heard what he saw

And touched with his own hands

The Word who is life I give to you

That you may understand


The Gospel story history books

The Church in every place

All owe their power to this one source

The witness and the grace


So let your life be witness

In everything you do

To the love of God in Jesus

Let this be seen in you
